There is that one person at some point in your life whose smile, when it fills their face, causes such a deep ache in your very core.

Its beauty causes you to become overwhelmed, overflowing, and words would fall short if you attempted in that moment to express the unconditional and limitless love that you have for them.

It is as if the very act of their smile causes ripples in the fabric of the Universe. Silent waves that shift your emotional plates, causing tiny earthquakes within, upheavals and molten fissures of the heart.

It is a smile that brings forth the emotional textures of longing. A smile that even if only for a brief moment, chases all of your shadows away and bathes you wholly in light.
